It's almost party time!!!

The birthday cards have started to trickle in, but I am being very good and waiting until Pink Pig's actual birthday before opening them!!

It's getting very exciting, I have pink fizz for adults and kids, pink buns, pink balloons.....oh my god it's sooooo pink!!! You would never have guessed it's my least fave colour!, but Green Pig and Purple Pink just didn't have the same ring!!!

On the day there will be free make & takes available, so if you're passing, pop in for a bun and crafty session. Also, there will be some crafty goodies to give away just because I can!!! 

If you can't make it to the shop, don't worry, you won't be forgotten about, there will be offers available for everyone instore and online.

Watch this space.....

My Family...

What a lovely weekend we had in London to celebrate Niamh's 10th Birthday. We went to see We Will Rock You (for the 3rd time!) but as Niamh loves Queen as much as me and Neil, it was a winner all round. A fantastic performance with some very lively audience members!

After a TGI tea, where Niamh was treated by TGI's to a hat and cake, we had a lovely stroll along the Southbank where Niamh rode the Merry-go-Round with her Dad......

Now back to my crafty haven to continue with my Christmas Cards.

Did you enjoy Bonfire night?

Hope everyone had an enjoyable and safe Bonfire Night. We went to Mum and Dad's for a little firework display. I say little, but as my Dad sells the fireworks, so we do end up with some large show stoppers!!

Back at the office, I haven't been able to make many cards due to ill health (again) Its always a little difficult when you can't focus to stay in the lines with the old Promarkers!!, but hey ho, getting back to normal now and to compete with the fireworks, I have come up with this little creation:

I stumbled across after partially watching create and craft. They have some fantastic digital stamps and some of the designs even come with their own backing papers and embellishments!! Superb!!

Only 24 days until our 1st Birthday. I hope you're all having fun creating your Birthday cards for a chance to win a £10 birthday present. Get the kids involved...they could win your Christmas pressie!!

Happy Crafting

Sketch Challenge #3 (sort of ish)

Well the website is back up and running, so the stock checking has commenced to try and get everything as accurate as possible......exhausting work! and to add to it I'm still trying to make at least 100 Christmas cards to sell at a Christmas market. Here's a couple of creations:-

I've been very Molly Blooms orientated since I attended one of Clare Rowland's classes. Loving the new designs!

Today, Pink Pig is 11 months old, so I thought the Sketch Challenge sort of ish should be for everyone to create a Birthday card all ready for our 1st Birthday!!

So, I'm not exactly giving you the sketch, more like the theme ( should have called it theme challenge?!? )
My daughter Niamh will choose the winning design at random out of a hat and the winner will receive £10 to spend at Pink Pig!!

So what are you waiting for???? Get crafting!!!!
